    Well,I made it to Fl.last wed. night and still haven't got out yet :cursing:
    Oh,well,I got every morning next week.I'm going to fish the gulf beaches between Naples and Ft.Meyers,plan to travel light and catch whatever is willing to play with me.
    Want to caryy just a few items with me
    3/8 oz. gold spoon
    zara spook-as yet undetermind size and color
    1/4-1/2 oz.jigs

    Help me out on some plastic colors and brands(except doa shrimp!!)
    or any other things I should try.

    I ain't picky,just want some action,all catch and release.
    I got no problem freelining a live shrimp,but wanting to expand a little

    Try a white body with a red tail or a yellow tail rubber body like a mr twister.

    You might want to consider trying for black drum. They are often found near bridges over protected waters such as bays or the intracoastal waterway. Also where rivers run into the gulf. Blue crabs are the ticket for them. You can usually find live blue crabs at the bait shop; cut the big ones into quarters, or use the small ones whole. These big bruisers often run 30#-40# and fight like catfish.

    Hi Cook, you might want to try Berkley sandworms or sand crabs also made by berkely. Fish them with a slider rigg. Good Luck!
